Default Getting the mac id of my wlan adapter

Good day

I have a htc tattoo A3288 WM 6.5 (English)
Model Nexperia sy.sol 5209 Rom version 01.030.4 p618c
CPU Marvell PXA310 speed 624 MHz. platform pocket pc.
ce os 5.2.23090.

I want to retrieve my mac id of the wlan ar6000 sd adapter,
but my rom doesn.t display this id. I want to put the id in my router for
macfiltering. Can any one help me where i can download a prog for getting my mac id visible?

First of all, check THIS link to learn why not to use Mac Filtering and why it's quite useless.

If you still want to keep Mac filtering, then go to Settings>Wireless Settings>Wi-Fi Settings>Menu>Advanced.

Smile thanks

Thanks stupid of me It is totally correct about the macfiltering.
So i stopped the macfiltering in my router, connected my tattoo to the internet through my router and looked at the dhcp client list.
Et Voila there was the macadres i wanted.
thanks for the lesson.

You're welcome.

Also, if you want your wireless network to be secure, then just use a WPA or WPA2 encryption with a 13+ digit alpha-numeric key. That should make it quite secure and very difficult to crack.
